Dialing Brian Moran

Sandhya Somashekhar

When Brian Moran gave out his private cell phone during a television interview last week, folks from his opponents' campaigns chortled.

But someone out there was listening. Moran said he got about a dozen hang-ups in the few days following the interview, probably from people "who wanted to know if the number was real."

But then this morning, on the road between an appearance on MSNBC and a pre-Election Day rally in Alexandria, his phone rang again. And he picked it up.

It was a woman whose grandchildren had been taken from her daughter's home by child welfare officials, and who wanted help getting the children back to her home.

"She said we ignore grandparents' rights in Virginia," Moran said. "I told her to send me the information and I will look into it."

My understanding is that by law social workers are supposed to first look to family members for placement. Maybe grandma has a history that caused the social worker to think that placing the kid(s) there wouldn't be such a great idea.
